Image titleIn the cool confines of The Loop on Wellington Street you'll find I Know John. The name references the former use of passwords during Prohibition to gain access to the best juice joints. They've used beautiful woods throughout the decor along with lots of concrete and exposed pipes for that intentionally unpolished cool factor.

Chorizo Milagro $95

We were of mixed opinions about when meat and cocktails mix but this was one tasty concoction and the chorizo on top (it comes with three skewered rolls) were stolen from under my nose before I'd even looked down.

Cana Sarapan $80

Along with the lush drinks, they offer gourmet hot dogs to soak up some of the devil's juice. With four international flavours, you can opt for the American, Mexican, Italian or the French Onion that are sure to be a big hit for those out for the evening but without the chance to stop the good times for a proper supper.

We visited on a quieter evening but we can imagine it would have a great buzzy vibe on a busy night with a view that adds an extra kick of atmosphere. So we know in the heading we mentioned reasonably-priced drinks and that many may lament the between $80-$95 price tags, but we have found it to be a rare thing to be charged less than a hun or more for any laborious libations in Central, especially at a cool new bar like this one is sure to be.
